This was a bit of a difficult year. With the introduction of drafting in some of the SP races in Belgium, (particularly the ETU race in Geel and the Belgian Championships in Kapelle o/d Bos), I decided that I would
move to drafting free long distance races sooner than I anticipated. As a result, I decided to have a go at the full distance at the Coast triathlon in Middelkerke. Obviously, this means that my seasons planning is
very different from how it was in the past, and that makes it very difficult to have good results this year.
